Hello I was wondering what the benefits are of using email clients such as Outlook or Thunderbird as opposed to direct online access (in other words, opening my yahoo mail in Firefox opposed to opening it in Thunderbird).
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
Albert Einstein
US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)

I support this theory and all others from Einstein (even his theory on a static universe)
Not really!

This link has it covered pretty well: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/82884/online-email-vs-outlook/

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

If you get a lot of E-mail, you can save time by downloading it into your computer's hard drive (POP E-mail) to read or answer later, while at the same time browsing or otherwise using the Internet. You also have a permanent record of the E-mail that you can access at any time.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
